355ml bottle pours a golden orange color with a finger of white head that leaves a few spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is piney with some citrus and light caramel. Taste is piney and citrus hop bitterness with a caramel malty sweet backbone. Light to medium in body and moderately carbonated for a nice tingle on the tongue. Not one of the best IPAís out there, but this is still a tasty brew and I enjoyed the experience.

Pours slightly hazy golden tan with thin head. Hops are bitter, slightly odd aftertaste. Don't plan to purchase again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

this is a good beer if its all you can find. more of an entry level northwest ipa. its got good color and its very clear but the nose could be stronger and the taste while good isnt what it could be.

Shink (177) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 16, 2012
Pours a clear golden with a solid white head. Smell is a little off. Taste is mildly hoppy with a grainy finish. Not too bad.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Bottle. Orange pour with a white head. Pine resin nose. Nice easy drinking hop flavor - not over the top but good character.

This is to the dull side of a middle-of-the-road IPA. Itís not a bad beer, but IMHO it is too malty and lacking in hops to be an IPA.

davidd (7) - Alabama, USA - JUN 7, 2012 does not count
Decent, drinkable, and inexpensive for "good" beer. But nothing too exciting. Itís pretty middle-of-the-road all around, and while I get bitterness from the hops, I donít get any other hoppy goodness.

Nothing "astonishing" about this weak IPA. Overall, weak in every department. Maybe I got an older 6íer judging by the dust on the bottles?
